Woods EXPERIENCES OF THE FACULTY IN EUROPE. Several members of the Wellesley Faculty were traveling in Europe at the time of the outbreak of the war, and their experiences in the war zone and in writing out of it, were \ery interesting. Dr. Lockwood, Miss McDowell and Dr. Ray- mond were in Germany when hostilities began. Dr. Lockwood traveled from Baden to Frankfurt and from Frankfurt to Rotterdam by trains so crowded with German soldiers that there was standing room only, and by a Dutch freight steamer on the Rhine, upon her arrival in Rotterdam acted for a time as secretary to the American consul, and sailed for America on August 29 Miss Mc- Dowell, who was in Brandenburg, also secured passage by the Holland-American Line, sailing from Rotterdam after a journey of the utmost difficult)-, which had taken three days instead of a scheduled ten hours, occupying, on shipboard, a state-room newly constructed from what had been the third- class dining-room, and where fresh paint and rats abounded. NO. 2. Dr. Raymond's experience was uneventful, and singularly free from discomfo Dr. Hants, Mi-- Fletcher and Mi-- Miller, all of the Departmenl of Latin, were in Rome. They returned without difficulty. Mi— Edwards, of the Greek Department, who had been spending a year in Greece, 31 age for New York, with twelve other Americans on a (.reek freighter, carrying a cargo of currants, the journey taking twenty-four days. Mi-- Hayes, Mi-s Dally and Miss Streibert were in Switzerland. Mi-- Hayes and Miss Dally were in Lucerne when news of the war came. After waiting for two weeks in Bern, they -tarted for Paris by way of Geneva. At every border they were forced to show passport-. Twice they were delayed for five hours. At Digione, French soldiers gave them coffee. They finally reached Paris, at night, having subsisted for the twenty-eight hours pre- vious on bread and milk chocolate. The rest of their trip to London was uneventful, although they passed within twenty-five miles of the battle line. On September 10, they sailed from Liverpool. Miss Streibert 's experience was very similar. As did most of the other members of the Facultx . -h< passed among soldiers, refugees, prisoners and Red Cross camps. Mis- Smith sailed from Liverpool on August 13. The steamer came under sealed orders, and carried five thousand bags of mail. PEACE SUNDAY. The day of prayer for peace, appointed by Presi- dent Wilson, was observed in both the momin.L' and evening services at the Houghton Memorial Chapel on Sunday. In the morning Rev. Edward Noyes of Newton Center, conducted the service. The text of his sermon was Colossians 1 : 18. The choir sang a special peace anthem, arranged by Mr. Macdougall from the beautiful peace passage in Second Isaiah — "The Lord shall judge among the nations." The offering of the day, except that given especially for the Christian Association, was turned into the Red Cross relief fund. In the evening President Pendleton made a special prayer for peace, and the peace anthem was repeated in the chi *ir. THE PIT ENTERTAINS. These cool October evenings find many parties abroad, bent on enjoying the moonlight in com- bination with camp-fire suppers. The small and exclusive pit across the outlet has been sacrified to utility and now forms part of the chicken farm, but the large sand pit on the edge of the golf links has been received into popular favi >i an 1 every night from its sheltered depths the glow of fires and the ple°sant odor of roasting rises SOPHOMORE SERENADE. A stirring drum-beat called the attention of the waiting Freshmen to the approach of the Sopho- more serenaders on Saturday evening, October 3. It was a well-trained battalion that stepped forth so briskly beneath waving lanterns: — three hundred strong, behind an imposing drum-major. The regimental uniform of white, with blue collars and girdles, was \-i -r\ becoming. The usual advice was musically given and musically received; the most popular song briny last year's "Comp. and Math, and Hygiene all the day." THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS.

We hope that Wellesley College is grateful to those who have awakened her to a sense of her share of responsi- bility for lightening the burden of hardship which is pressing so sore upon the peoples of Europe and Asia. We have Indeed been singularly blessed in being spared, alone among the great nations, from the horrors of war, and it is doubtless impossible for those of us who have not seen, to comprehend more than a little of the suffering and devastation which these last weeks have brought But when we consider the hideousness of the vampire which is hanging over our sister-nations, sucking the life from their commerce, their art, their scientific progress, robbing them of their most precious vitality, we cannot be so provincial as to feel that we have no share in what has been truly called a "world-disaster." The progress of civilization has intermingled the interests of the nations too closely for it to be possible for one to escape wholly the trouble of the others. We do not refer to relatively small present inconveniences so much as to the check which is being put upon the development of that which, for want of a better word, we must call civilization. There are two duties which devolve upon the United States and upon us as her citizens: First, to allay, in so far as we may, present distress; second, to stand ready, when the present is past to offer to share the best that we have been able to learn. Yet, further, we can show that in this time which is marked by the greatest war in history, that we whose fathers fought wars for causes that they judged just, can learn the high courage of all those who are fighting now for the things that they value above life. In the pride of our little knowledge we have doubtless formed opinions as to the righteous- ness of the nations' causes; but, whatever diplomatic power we favor, we can realize that the common people who are nearest to us are fighting and suffer- ing, inspired by a glorious patriotism to which we, who have never been tried, may well pay impartial homage. THE BURDEN OF ATLAS. "America's economic and industrial respon- sibility," "America's political responsibility; "- from the pulpit, the lecture-platform, the magazine, the daily paper, such phrases are hurled at us, striking us into a state of awe, a state of con- scious growth, and, with it, a state of pride. Amer- ica is the only one of the so-called "powers" of this universe that has escaped the dark bewilder- ment of the war-web. The barbarism underlying gold braid and human machines, the hideousness of the exacting spectre Militarism, we have seen, and we alone have found them not good. Therefore are we proud — of ourselves and of our restraint. "Sanity," Wilson has given to be our watchword; yet the mass is tense when it finds itself blood- splashed from beyond seas. Therefore have the clear-sighted resolved that, amid the crash of dynasties, principles of government shall yet be upheld, traditions shall live on, the industrial proletariat shall not starve for want of material and outlet for their productive mills. Ragnarok the Twilight of the Gods, may darken Europe, yet shall America the Responsible watch over the precarious flame of civilization. It is good; yet there is another responsibility, peculiarly ours here at College. It has little to do with the maintenance of the democratic ideal of government, little to do with the cotton industiy and the "Buy a Bale" Club. What it does concern, and that nearly, is the cultural future of the world. Oxford quadrangles hear the clangor of ambu- lance-bells, and in the famous halls are lines of white cots— for Oxford is a field-hospital. The German universities are closed; and why should they stand open? Educable youth and educating maturity are alike with the army. A new genera- tion does not grow up in a day. It is upon Amer- ican universities and colleges that the glorious and terrible responsibility lies — the responsibility of keeping alive cultural standard?, of educating the coming generation of the great and the normal making up the world. German and English scientists, Belgian artists, French poets, Italian musicians are fighting; and the black-mouthed war-dogs do not stop for the world's genuises. They lick up a Kreisler or a Maeterlinck as greedily as they do Jean, the blacksmith from Upper Lorraine. Artists and poets and musicians constitute another crop that ripens only under the Peace-Sun; and the world of the next decade will look to America, to the American universities, for its men and women of keen thought, of skillful touch. To us is it given — a privilege and a lofty responsibility to be appreciated, and to be used to the full. The world rests on our shoulders. Shall we be as strong and as patient as Atlas? FREE PRESS. I. A Voice from the Tomr. In the News published just before the close of College last June, there was a Free Press on the subject of try-outs for Barn plays. The writer judged that the existing method of appointing the cast for such plays did not discover the best histrionic talent of the undergraduate body, since there were no open try-outs. Theoretically, this method of elimination on a large scale would eventually bring out a good deal of ability, but there are difficulties of a practical nature to be reckoned with. Try-outs for an all college cast would mean several evenings devoted to giving every applicant a fair chance, and after these first trials more narrow ones would have to take place. In the end the time spent in try-outs would be out of proportion to the six re- hearsals allowed for the actual preparation of the play. Were the College smaller, or time for dra- matic ventures unlimited, this free-for-all method would undoubtedly be the fairest. The officers of the Barn have realized this fact, and have tried to carry it out as far as possible. While no large try- ouls are held, the usual procedure is to select several persons for one part, and to apply the method of elimination by merit. The Barn has tried in selecting these persons to seek out those who have not appeared before on the College stage, or have not held major parts. Occasionally seasoned "actors" and actresses appear who have been tried and not found wanting. However, to exist from year to year the Barn must constantly discover new material. Village Seniors can help the president of the Barn to a large extent by letting her know of promise in that unknown quantity, the Freshman class. Chairmen of former Sophomore and Junior plays can very easily keep lists of the talented girls who have tried out, and bring them to the president's attention. The violet need no longer blush unseen if co-operation of this sort goes on, and a Duse or Bernhardt will be given every chance- to prove her worth. Dorothy A. Stiles, 1914. 11. The New Social Schedule. Among other changes of which 11c have heard since our return this falUis that very important one in the Social Schedule. In former years Wednes- day afternoon has been the established time for Student Government and class meetings, and the periods after 4.05 have been kept free for these appointments. With the Christian Association meeting in the evening, Wednesday was particularly busy, and it was difficult for those of us whose Thursday schedule was heavy to give adequate preparation for those classes. Many girls, too, pre- ferred the Wednesday afternoon matinee to the routine of organization meetings; so that the at- tendance at those meetings was not as large as was? desired. The further change in the Social Schedule is the adoption of Friday, instead of Monday, as the evening for recitals, lectures and concerts. The former Monday evening meetings were, as one of the members of the Faculty expressed it, "a relic of the time when Monday was a free day," and the students were able to get a good start on the class assignments for the week. With the present schedule of academic appointments, however, most lower classmen at least, find their schedule cards well crowded on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning with a call-out or gymnasium class in be- tween times. Under such circumstances it was extremely difficult to plan our work. The new Friday evening schedule ought to eliminate a great deal of this difficulty; for since there are no classes on Saturday afternoon and fewer classes on Satur- day morning than on any other day, no schedule- should be heavy enough to prevent us from at- tending the lectures. The new plans have been met with general ac- clamation and satisfaction from those who have experienced the schedule just withdrawn. H. H. P., 1916.

The example of these Wellesley women should incite others to redouble l heir energy, and it is hoped that these notices maj offer valuable suggest ions to those who arc anxious to help. From eight Wellesley Alumna- in Hawaii, comes three hundred dollars as the resull of "College- Capers" given in Honolulu, where UYIleslev girls, assisted by Harvard, Cornell, Bryn Mawr and other college men and women, conducted the first com- mencement exercises ol "Aloha ( )ollege"of imaginary fame. This very success! ul entertainment numbered among its features an academic procession and the presentation of degrees to leading citizsns by the "Chancellor of Aloha College," amid shouts of laughter from the audience; and a graphic repro- duction of a Wellesley fire-drill was given ("Welles- ley girls very kindly supplied by (he Honolulu School for Boys!"). A Hasty Pudding Play was given by Harvard men. Each college represented had a booth, Wellesley 's being a mere skeleton constructed from the charred remains of a burned building. At the close an auction of the college buildings was held, and the evening ended with a "J unior Prom" for which Wellesley badge \ in place of dance tickets, were sold by the ushers. A benefit performance of Marie Warren's "A 1 w ig of Thorn" has just been given in New I laven, at which Miss Beulah Hepburn. 1912, danced. Four hundred and thirty dollar.-- was made by a "Frolic" given at Andover Academy in June, by Wellesley girls from Andover. Lawrence, Bradford, Reading and Methuen. News of Miss Hazard is always welcome, and it is to her personal effort and to the work of her com- mittee that we owe the sum which resulted from the interesting program given at Hazard Castle, Narra- ganselt Pier, on July II. The program, including dances by the Peacedale and Wakefield school children and songs by the Wellesley < dee Club, won merited applause from a large audience. Eight hundred and twenty-five dollars was made for the fund. The Concord group of Wellesley women have sent in two hundred and eight dollars, the proceeds of a "package party" supplemented by ten-dollar pledges. Invitations were sent out in this form: "Won't you bring a package With you, buy one, too, For the Wellesley Fire Fund? This we ask of you. Tie your package tightly, On it mark the price — Ten, twenty-five or fifty cents; We'll sell it in a ti ice. At Mrs. Walcott's, Elm Street, May seventh, three to five, Jellies, fudge, a cup of tea, Will your hearts revive." The package party proved a simple way to raise a small amount of money, — ninety dollars, in this case. The Boston Wellesley Club held a benefit per- formance of "Along Came Ruth" at the Plymouth Theater on September 22, at which seven hundred and twenty-five dollars was cleared They are also planning to give, on November 17, both after- noon and evening, a Sousa concert . Wellesley people in the vicinity are asked to "save this date and start at once to interest \ our friends." Three hundred dollars was received from a very successful bazaar and the dansant given this summer by Mary Chase Locfcwood at the Wis- casset Bungalows, Pocono Mountains. L. P. HOLLANDER & CO. BOSTON NEW YORK Ladies and Misses' Gowns, Suits, Waists, Evening and Carriage Wraps, Automobile and Fur Coats, Millinery, Underwear, Small Wears and Furnishings. Through the Efforts of Our Foreign Buyers and European Organization, we have received our entire importations for the season, and take pleasure in announcing to our customers that the assortment of Original Foreign Models, and Our Own Copies is larger than we have ever before shown and have the mark of distinction characteristic of our exhibition. A benefit, in the form of a clever college vaude- ville was given in Medford, Mass. All the num- bers were contributed by representatives of various New England colleges. Eight hundred and twenty- seven dollars was cleared. Wellesley Alumnae of Duluth, Minnesota, raised four hundred and twenty-five dollars this summer at a benefit at which the Wellesley moving-picture films were used. From Reading, Mass., one hundred and twenty- five dollars raised by a moving-picture performance, and four Alumnae of Red Bank, N. J., sent four hundred and sixty-five dollars as the result of a performance of which the Les Miserables films were shown. The Rhode Island Alumnae have many and profitable enterprises to their credit. On June 1, the "Myth of Pandora" was given at the Moses Brown School, in Providence. Beulah Hepburn, 1912, Polly Lawrence, 1909, and Bertha Schedler, 191 1, were among the principal dancers. Eight hundred and seventy-five dollars was cleared. Eight hundred and twenty-five dollars was sent in as the result of a Garden Party, given August 1 ; and from the same club have come goodly sums from various other sources: Bridge parties at Block Island and Barrington, a play at Sakonnet, and a lecture at Newport. There is now ready a "Wellesley Cook Book" published by the Utah Wellesley Club. It is a gift book edition, very attractively printed and bound, and contains many famous Wellesley recipes, "from the president's house, dormitories, societies, from Alumnae in Japan, Turkey, Germany, from Maine to California." Think of "Bean Soup with Sausage," "Manana-land," "Stickies" and "New Jean Cake," and order a copy at once! They may be obtained from Mrs. Arthur P. Stone, Eleventh East Street, Salt Lake City. Price, fifty cents. A postal card, done by Harold Sichel, .111 ex- quisite appreciation of the spirit of Tree Day, may be had from Muriel Windram Sichel, 130 Wesl 34th Street, N. V. These cards are fifty c< nts a dozen, six for twenty-five cents, or five cents apiece. If ordered by Wellesley clubs, they may be had for two cents apiece, retailing at five cents; a profit of three cents being credited to the club. Do your Christmas ordering now! The poem by Frances L. Ferrero, originally published with the etching of College Hall D5 Margaret H. Wright, has been set to music and is now being sold for the fund. This song could well be included on Wellesley Benefit programs and copies might be sold later as souvenirs. WOMEN'S EDUCATIONAL AND INDUS- TRIAL UNION. My experience during the past year has been that our Wellesley community does not really know what the Women's Educational and Indus- trial Union stands for, or what it is doing, and that one has only to place before any member of the College some meagre outline of its varied activities to meet with an instant and sympathetic response to an appeal for co-operation, at least to the ex- tent of becoming a member. The advantages of membership are certainly mutual; for, while the Union depends upon membership fees for part of the expenses of its social-educational work, it offers various benefits to the members who pay the small annual fee of one dollar. Every member appreciates the convenient Rest Room and the Members' Lunch Room, although in the present restricted quarters one must usually allow r extra time during rush hours in return for the certain excellence of the food that is served; but student members will often find the Reference Library of especial value.

Wellesley students are well informed as to the aims of the Appointment Bureau, administered by Miss Florence Jackson, a former member of the Wellesley Chemistry Department. Miss Mabel Curtis, 1890, the field agent of the Bureau, is en- gaged in finding new vocational opportunities. The Bureau is especially at the service of college women, whether graduates or undergraduates, help- ing to procure for them positions other than teaching or to advise them in preparing for unusual and pio- neer positions. The training courses for teachers of industrial schools and of salesmanship are conducted under the direction of Mrs. Lucinda \Y. Prince, Wellesley, '9 T_ 93. a nd Miss Helen Norton, 1905, is associate director. This year the following Wellesley grad- uates are taking the course: Dorothy Ayer, 1914, Ruth Benjamin, 1914, Katherine J. Dennis, 1914, Man," Grosvenor, 1914, Agnes Shand, 1914, Carlena Walker, 1910, and Harriet Goddard, 1902. Miss Dorothy Applegate, 1912, is working on material for the director, which will probably be. published later. Visitors are most welcome at these classes, and the demonstration sales that are held fre- quently are as instructive to the visitors as to the young saleswomen from Boston department stores in all that pertains to the psychology of the counter. Each year there are three fellowships offered in Industrial Research, under the direction of Miss Susan M. Kingsbury cf Simmons College, which Wellesley students and graduates should know about. Miss Louise Moore, 190S, holds one of the fellowships this year. The fellows receive a stipend and work on the problem assigned for the year. The training thus afforded has prepared women foi positions as special investigators for city and state institutions. The names of many Wellesley women have been associated with the union, and there is quite a group at present engaged in the work of che several departments. President Pendleton, Professor Balch, Professor Hart, Miss Florence Converse and Miss Helen Goss are numbered among the Trustees and Advisory Committees; Mrs. Prince, Miss Norton and Miss Jackson have been mentioned already; and associated with me in the financial office are Miss Mabel T. Champlin, 1903, Assistant Fnancial Secretary, and Miss Caroline Noble, 1890. I speak for all of these latter when I say that we are always glad to receive Wellesley friends and show them the many interesting activities of the union, and we cor- dially invite you to become members. Roxana H. VrviAN, 1894. BROWNING AT SHAFER. During the half hour from nine-thirty to ten o'clock on the evening of October second, Shafer living-room witnessed a most unusual demonstration of the famous news carrying from Ghent to Ais by a band of riders before its own fireside. Elizabeth Roop read the poet's version of the incident, while Shafer's strong riders presented their version. By urging on rocking-chair steeds, whose necks were fashioned according to the manner of hockey sticks, Dorothy Roberts, Margaret Woods and Dorothy Baldwin gave a vivid realization of the difficulties of the ride. The scenery also moved, especially the electric light globe, which slowly "sank to rest" from its height into a soft green cushion upon the floor. As soon as the hero and his steed galloped into Aix (on the west side of the fireplace) its citizens rushed out to meet them, reviving horse and rider with denatured alcohol as the poet's and actors' version came to a simul- taneous ending.

After the class meeting the Seniors formed a procession and marched on to the green where "centre," "second floor centre" and "third floor centre " were marked by signs. Following out the old custom the Seniors cheered their new officers from their Senior place, and then, singing their class song, moved to their Freshman place on "third floor centre" where they cheered their Freshman cheer and sang a Freshman song. At the Sophomore place "Here comes our Edith now" commemorated Sophomore year. Whistle-blowing at the Junior place and a cheer for forensic burning brought 1915's history up to Senior year. So, in spite of difficulties, was an ancient custom perpetuated. PIT PARTY AT WOOD. An open fire, and dim rafters that might be trees, such was the mis en scene of Wood's inspirational pit-party, given on Wednes- day the thirtieth as a house-warming to the new girls from the old. The multitude trooped in gaily to the metamorphosed dining-room, squatted in pit-ish attitudes on the floor, and conversed with true Woodsian hilarity. Refreshments were the familiar roasted sausages, crullers and other delicacies; the evening closed with an amateuy song-rehearsal of "They say that the Splinters ther ain't got no style."

Several thousand photographs of Wellesley girls in different poses, are to be shipped to Europe by the Wellesley Red Cross steamship "Legenda," as evidence of Wellesley's interest in the war. A well-known Boston photographer (whose picture we print) is almost on the verge of a breakdown from taking six poses in every fifteen minutes all day long. The fair maidens who haunt his studio in pur- suil "I their altruistic mission, cannot be persuaded to ilivulgu much information, but the following plans have been learned. Wellesley, is, of course, interested in the war, and "hates to think of those poor soldiers hastening alone to the field," with no personal motive. After delving in tales of old- time chivalrous combats, it was decided that pictures of pretty girls might prove a helpful im- petus, since the war is too far started to be alto- gether stopped. Pictures are, therefort-. being taken, and will be shipped to the battle-field, on lirl'i Day, which will be a great occasion. The photographs, in accordance with President Wilson's desire for neutrality, are being made as uniform as possible, and each will be wrapped in a five-cent pocket handkerchief. The student body voted to accompany the steamship to help in distribution, bu: were deterred from their purpose by the Acadei Council. So the "Legenda pictures," as the fondly call them, must go forth alone, but man] longing thought will accompany them. WELLESLEY DYSPEPTIC FROM PRINT. College Paper Served for Supper by Mistake.

Thi WELLESLEY AMAZONS ORGANIZING. Wellesley, Mass., October 3 — The Freshman and Sophomore classes arc believed to be mobilizing. The latter have already marched in regimental file with drum and fife through the town, and the Freshmen are expected soon to follow. It is believ< d that they are considering an ultimatum of some sort. Camp-fires were seen last night in the direc- tion of the Pit. WELLESLEY GIRLS LEARN SPINSTER- OLOGY. The Wellesley College News for October 1 tells of an Old Maids' Dormitory which has been opened in Wellesley this fall. This organization, which has been more cordially received at the College than the aforementioned Marriage Club, is another example of the vocational specialization of the day. It aims to prepare thoroughly those who propose to take up the life-work of spinsterhood. It is reported that there will be transferred to this house, from the old entrance to College Hall, the pillars bearing the inscription of long Freshmen [radii ion: '"Who enters lien abando ns hop.." The house is well removed from Tupelo Point. BOSTON GIRLS POPULAR. wo well-known Boston girls (whose names and tictures we print) are so popular out at Wellesley that their classmates find it difficult to choose be- tween them. Each has one vote for the office of class treasurer, (an office named by last week's College New-, as the most important of all). LAST WORD IN EDUCATION. (With apologies to Sir J. Luckling.)

This month marks the beginning of the term of office of Miss Mabel E. Haywood as Executive Secretary to the International Institute for Girls in Spain. Miss Haywood, whose home is in Wash- ington, D. C, is a graduate of Goucher College, Baltimore. She has spent most of her life in Span- ish-speaking countries and two years ago served the Institute as teacher of gymnastics and higher English. She will devote her time this winter to addressing girls in those institutions which are so loyally supporting this sister school in Madrid. Miss Susan D. Huntington, the Directora of the International Institute, after making a short visit to this country, has sailed again for Spain. At the informal reception given her at the head- quarters of the Institute, 603 Pierce Building, Boston, Miss Huntington met those most closely associated with the work in Spain and gave a short account of the progress of the Institute. She told of the school year just passed, with its students, more in number than ever before, drawn from all parts of Spain, from South America and other countriesas well, of the English course, which shows the greatest increase in numbers, the promising initial year of the normal course, the graduate department of ten students, four of them graduates of American universities, and the gratifying re- sults of the public examinations. The large enrol- ment has made heavy demands upon the dormi- tory rooms and it was found necessary to turn over to the boarding students every room that could be made available. Toward the end of the year Miss Huntington received the decoration of As- torga from the Crown in recognition of the value of the Institute to the community. FIRE FUND.

Any members of the Faculty or any students still unsupplied with pledge cards, provided by the Missionary Committee for the purpose of raising the annual Wellesley Missionary Fund, can obtain them at any time by applying at the Christian Association office at Billings Hall. Attention is called to the fact that all the loose change given in the offering at the morning service on October 4 is to be devoted to the work of the Red Cross Association. If there are any members of the College who were not present at that service who wish to contribute to this fund, they may leave their gifts with the General Secretary of the Christian Association at Billings Hall. CHANGE IN MISSIONARY VESPERS. Missionary Vespers are to be made doubly attractive this year by the addition of special music. CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATIO N MEETING. Rachel Davis, 1915, gave a good, practical talk- on every-day Christianity at the campus Christian Association meeting on Wednesday evening, Septem- ber 30 One noteworthy sentence with regard to church going was a quotation from a Silver Bay speaker: "If you can find a church with which you feel perfectly satisfied, don't join it, you'll hinder its progress." A delightful feature of the meetings this year is the large and enthusiastic choir, which leads the singing, and is practising music for speciil oc- casions. Now that there are no meetings Wednes- day afternoon, the Christian Association meetings deserve a continuation of the splendid attendance which has marked the beginning of their year. THEATER NOTICES. "Potash and Perlmutter." "Potash and Perlmutter," comes to the Tremont Theater on October 5, direct from its second year's run at the Cohan Theater, New York. While the three-act comedy is filled with laughter, the plot itself is serious enough, and comedy alternates with pathos. Pinochle and Politics, Love and Law con- tribute to the rapid succession of incidents. The three acts carry the principals from the old- fashioned down-town establishment of the firm to a modern up-town office and work-shop, and finally to the Potash home. Care has been taken to reproduce these scenes with utmost fidelity to detail and the roles are in the hands of New York favorites. The fifth week of William Hodge in "The Road to Happiness" at the Wilbur Theater in Boston, shows steady success and increasing popularity. Mr. Hodge, his old, familiar and likable self in a comedy of Upper New York State, "The Road to Happiness." The piece makes Mr. Hodge, a young country law student with a fund of pro- verbial wisdom, the center of a story that is often melodramatic. Mr. Hodge acts capitallv. —Adv.

Thayer, McNeil Company, BOSTON 15 West Street SUMMER WORK. Of the many fields of work open to college students in the summer, here are some which enabled girls to return this fall. Besides the ancient and honor- able domestic work of waiting on table, many other occupations, pleasant as well as remunerative, pre- sented themselves. Two examples of work done in and about the house deserve particular mention. One girl made and baked bread for several neighbors. Another did general farm work, which, as most of us realize, requires a large amount of time and energy. The work consisted of various chores, such as taking care of twenty-two goats, a pony, a pig and dogs and cats, picking berries, vegetables and potato-bugs; trirnming vines, transplanting and weeding plants. But college girls know how to train children as well as animals of a lower nature, as is demonstrated by the fact that one of our members tutored seven boys and girls in arithmetic, algebra, French and Latin. The good, old-fashioned "reading and writing and arithmetic" were taught to fourth grade students by another student in a Western summer school. A great many assisted in Daily Vacation Bible Schools. Of secretarial and office positions one girl acted as switch-board operator in her home town, re- ceiving all of the toll calls, and another worked as secretary and bookkeeper at a large private camp for girls. Every summer a great many college girls act as councillors at camps. Last summer some taught physical training, including boiting, swimming, and dancing. Other girls, as craft teachers, gave in- struction in carpentry, leather-work, embroidery and the setting of jew'elry. Finally there are the girls who helped themselves by means of their own talents. One girl played the violin even - day at a summer hotel near her home. Another, naturally gifted in music, gave three con- certs and an operetta,. She not only wrote the words and music for the operetta, adapting and rearranging the material from an old fairy tale, but in addition, drilled and encouraged fifty-two children for its performance. These occupations show 7 that college girls possess initiative, courage and resource. Moreover, they have had the added advantage of widening their sympathies and experiences by getting into closer contact with the great school of work. R. L. S., 1916.
